Experienced workers’ compensation lawyer assisting injured workers
When you sustain an injury or illness at work, workers’ compensation can provide valuable benefits while you recover. Qualified employees can receive medical treatments, partial lost wages, and/or a settlement for permanent disability or disfigurement that resulted from the workplace injury. Workers’ compensation and injury laws are complicated, however, and too many injured or ill workers do not realize that they are receiving less than they deserve. A qualified workers’ comp and injury lawyer can advise you of your rights and evaluate the best course of action in your case.
Handling a wide range of injury cases
Workers’ compensation cases can vary widely and the benefits to which you are entitled will depend on the nature and severity of your injuries. Some of the common on the job injuries that result in workers’ comp benefits include the following:
- Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries and surgeries
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back and lumbar spine injuries
- Amputations and lost limbs
- Burns and electrocutions
- Vision or hearing impairments
- Psychological injuries
Simply because you sustained an injury does not automatically mean that you will begin receiving the full amount of benefits you deserve. In fact, too many employers and insurers work to limit liability and benefits for injured workers whenever possible. This can result in benefits that are too low and often in a minimal settlement offer. The assistance of an injury attorney can immensely improve our chances at obtaining the full amount to which you are entitled under the law.
